2011: CISE Awards at BU Science & Engineering Day – March 23

Celebrate CISE Student Research

In conjunction with the BU Science & Engineering Symposium on Wed., March 23rd, the Center for Information and Systems Engineering celebrates CISE graduate student research with the 8th annual CISE awards. This year, the CISE First Prize Award ($500) will be given on March 23 at 4 pm by President Brown along with the other main awards. CISE Honorable Mention winners will be announced subsequently.

Students should prepare a visually appealing and succinct poster that effectively communicates the research problem, techniques, results, and what is novel and important about the work.

Award criteria include research quality (depth and development of research ideas, and novelty and broad impact of the work), the extent of student ownership in the research, and presentation quality.

Posters will be judged by: CISE affiliated faculty- Professors Baillieul (ME), Crovella (CS), Paschalidis (ECE), Trachtenberg (ECE), Vakili (ME) and Wang (ME). SE Visiting Committee members- Professor Y. C. Ho (Harvard University- School of Engineering & Applied Sciences), Dimitris Bertsimas (MIT-Sloan School of Managment).

Spread the word to your CISE student colleagues!  We look forward to seeing your work on March 23rd.
